Choo Choo!

I have made some lovely cards using the Choo Choo set and the matching Wheel. They are just so cute I cannot get enough of them!!

To change it up abit I have added some animales from the Fox and Friends set and the Party this way is from the set called Party This Way!

I have made these in to some invites for my friends little boy who is going to be 2 in a few weeks time, I didn't use the animals though as only thought of that after and wish I had now! Never mind!! They look so good and I am so pleased with them.

If you are interested in any invites for that special party then why not contact me and see what I can come up with or you could come and learn how to make them yourself. Just contact me at

Fathers Day Beer!

So today I want to show you the other Fathers Day card that I have made for my little stall in two weeks. I have used the Cheers To You set and stamped out the beer and cut around them. I have used some designer paper for the layering and the stars and stamped out the word Dad. Very simple but quite effective I think!
And here it is in a different colour way
Don't forget to pop by on Sunday 12th June at Plym Valley Railway in Plympton. Would be great to see you all there!

Fathers Day

Fathers day isn't that far away so I have made a start on some cards.
I have used the trendy trees stamp to make the background and some designer paper to make the shirt. I have used a sentiment from a non SU set and the card its mounted on isn't SU either

Heres it in a different colour way

I am going to be selling these  on my stall at Plym Valley Railway, Plympton, Plymouth on 12th June if you are passing then swing by and say hello!

Birthday Jems!

Today is the Birthday of two of the Jems, Lynda and Julie, and after last weeks mistake of not sending cards in time I am organised and they were sent off with plenty of time to get there!

I have used the Strength and Hope set for these cards - I am in love with the butterfly stamp its so detailed and stamps so well. I have made these cards the same but have changed a slight bit of detail - one has pearls and the other had some bling!

The bottom butterfly is sat on some branches from the Two Step Bird punch and the sentiment is from the Just Believe set

Stampin' Up are donating £1 from each purchase of the Strength and Hope Stamp set so why not treat your self and make a difference at the same time.

Engagement Invites!

Today I want to share with you my Engagement Invites!!!

I am so chuffed with how they have turned out... they are lush!!

I took inspiration from a very talented lady called Teneale Williams. If you have looked at her blog you should take some time out and have a look. Her cards are lovely! This is the post for the card I took my inspiration from. I have changed it alittle but just loved her style and the colours.

Here is my take

The papers are Love Letter
I have cut all my circles, numbers and letters on my Cricut
The Stamp set is Cheers To You
I printed the inside from my computer

I am so pleased with how these have turned out and can't wait for the party now!

If your are interested in making your own invites for a party that you are holding then why not get in contact with me to see what products we can off and book a workshop to learn how to make them

Belated Birthdays

I have the biggest apology to two of the girls from Julies Jems cause I missed their birthdays last week.

I have popped a card in the post to wish them a belated birthday and they should have received them by now and I hope that they make up for being late (promise I will try harder next year and send them on time!)

This first card is for Karen - it was her birthday on the Royal Wedding so I felt that I should acknowledge this (be rude not too!) so my little Owl has her crown on!!
I used a few things on this - The Owl Punch, the crown was from Tiny Tags and the papers are Springtime Vintage. I have used the Square Lattice embossing folder to add some texture to the Owl and the Scollop circle

The next card is for Sharon

The Owl Punch came in to use again (love that Owl!) To make the bunch of flowers I have used the Boho Blossom punch and some lovely pearls for the middle. I have used the Square Lattice to emboss the background.

I hope the girls like them and I am sorry they were late!

Animal ABC

I am not sure how this happened but yesterday I suddenly remembered that I have bought a stamp set last month and had forgotten all about it...! So I decided to sit down for the spare 10mins and make up a card. I took inspiration from the main catty for this one.

I love the colours on this. To make the back ground I stamped on to an A4 sheet and then cut the bit I wanted and I still have some left over for another card.

The Stamp set is Fox and Friends and I have used colours from the Brights collection

Have a great day
